“The current two-party monopoly is not working,” Yang wrote. “While the two major parties have different issues, we can all see that the polarization is getting worse and worse, with 42% of both sides not only wrong but evil about the other. Not being able to resolve meaningfully is why we all get angry and angry.”
In the letter, Yang also pointed to data that suggested Americans favor a third political party, but concluded that “both parties control the primary system right now, preventing the emergence of any meaningful third party.” I find it very difficult.”
“Imagine a monopoly that prevents any effective competition,” Yang wrote. “That’s what we currently have in the United States.
“Changing this is extraordinarily difficult but inevitable for our future,” he said. “We need to push for open primaries and rank-choice voting in congressional races across the country. This will both reduce polarization by making it so that our representatives respond to a broad majority rather than partisan ones, and new parties and perspectives.” Enable. Emerge. It will make our entire country more fair.”
In concluding his letter, Yang said that he had “hope for a positive political movement that is not born out of anger and demonization, but on optimism and solutions,” adding that the Forward Party is “an inclusive movement. “
The PAC was announced on the same day that Yang’s book, “Forward: Notes on the Future of Our Democracy,” became a hit across America.
